On Pentecost Day, 2010, the Africa Assemblies of God Alliance (AAGA) launched the “Decade of Pentecost” (2010-2020). During this decade AAGA is believing God for 10 million new believers to be baptized in the Holy Spirit and mobilized as Spirit-empowered witnesses, church planters, and cross-cultural missionaries. AAGA believes that this outpouring of the Spirit will result in thousands of new churches being planted, and hundreds of indigenous missionaries being recruited and deployed. Also, during the Decade of Pentecost, AAGA hopes to reach the more than 800 yet-to-be-reached tribes of sub-Sahara Africa and the Indian Ocean Basin. The Acts in Africa Initiative has been given the responsibility of leading the Decade of Pentecost emphasis.

“The New Testament Strategy of the Spirit: An Acts 1:8 Model for 21st Century Church Planting in Africa”
The Book of Acts tells the exciting story of how the early disciples carried out Christ’s redemptive mission in the power of the Holy Spirit. In doing this, they created a lasting model of how the church should continue until Jesus returns. In this book, veteran missionaries Denzil R. Miller and Mark R. Turney assess and commend this model. They do this by taking the reader into the book of Acts to carefully inspect the mission model it presents. They note how the Holy Spirit was the Chief Architect of the church’s missions strategy, a strategy they call the New Testament “Strategy of the Spirit.”
